Novo Nordisk Launches Insulin Cartridge

This week Novo Nordisk launched NovoRapid® PumpCart®, the first prefilled pump cartridge with an insulin analogue specifically designed for insulin pumps, according to the company web site. This new treatment solution, which contains NovoRapid® (insulin aspart) – a rapid-acting insulin from Novo Nordisk – is expected to make insulin pump therapy more convenient for people with diabetes and those who care for them.

The cartridge will eliminate the need to fill the insulin reservoir for the pump manually, which some people perceive as time-consuming and complicated.

The 1.6 ml cartridge has been developed in a non-exclusive partnership between Roche Diabetes Care and Novo Nordisk and is compatible with the new Accu-Chek® Insight insulin pump therapy system from Roche Diabetes Care, Novo Nordisk reported.
